Washington State Department of Early Learning, along with a number of other concerned agencies and organizations, developed a year-by-year guideline document for parents, educators, and child-care providers in Washington State. Chalkbox was tasked with making an exhaustive and detailed stack of lists and guidelines approachable in nature and easy to navigate. After much exploration, we developed a series of illustrations around trees that followed and grew as the age levels increased through the book.
Foundation for Early Learning (FEL) was one of Chalkbox’s first clients. We worked with them each year to design and produce invitations, programs, note cards, presentation templates, and other odds and ends for their annual fundraising luncheon. Their work was infinitely instrumental in elevating early learning efforts in Washington state. The organization was the very definition of “good people doing good work,” which is the type of organization we like to work with.
Eastside Prep in Kirkland, WA, is just over a decade old, but is providing some of the finest education experiences in the United States. To share the stories of their school, its growth, students, and faculty, Chalkbox designs a biannual, 48-page, full-color magazine. Unique faculty- and student-written articles around a central theme comprise each volume, which is rounded out by a handful of repeating columns.
Fatigue Technology helps keep our aircraft in the skies. They employ a large number of engineers who, upon entry, are asked to consider the career path they feel they want to pursue. Chalkbox helped FTI develop a small career pathways print piece for those incoming engineers.
After a few years in Seattle, Amy May’s firm, May Designs, was outgrowing its original identity. Chalkbox designed a new identity that would reflect the firm’s attitude, approach and modern sensibilities, and project the success the firm has and will yet achieve.
Working with former Seattle firm Design Kompany (now in North Carolina), we drew up a poster and postcard for the fall art-walk in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.
